On August 30, 2018, a freightliner truck-tractor driven by an employee of JAG Transportation suffered a tread separation of its left front tire while traveling eastbound on I-40 in McKinley County, New Mexico.
Following the tread separation, the freightliner crossed a 33-foot-wide earthen median, jackknifed, and continued into the westbound lanes where it struck a Greyhound bus carrying 48 passengers and its driver. Of the 49 people onboard the Greyhound bus, eight people were killed and dozens more were injured.
Our team at The Ammons Law Firm has filed a lawsuit on behalf a man who was killed and a woman who was seriously injured in the crash. In the lawsuit, attorneys Rob Ammons and John Gsanger have identified Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations, JAG Transportation, the driver of the freightliner, Greyhound, the driver of the Greyhound bus, and the New Mexico Department of Transportation as parties responsible for the deadly head-on collision.
